I was just about to pick up a new Unitiqute 2 when lowen behold the new Uniti line was released. Now I find that I can get a mint UQ2 for HALF the price of the Uniti Atom. I'm debating if its really worth the extra $ for the latest and greatest. You option will help me decide.
This is for music in our kitchen with linn Tukan speakers mounted near our ceiling.
Yes the design of the atom is cool and the led is great but don't really care since this kit goes inside a cabinet hidden from view.
i don't need apple air or goggle cast, only need UPnP funtionality with a ethernet connection.
Yes, I imagine the Atom has an improved dac but the UQ2 has a great dac.
i can buy two UQ2's for the price of an Atom.
Review of UQ2 have been favorable. Do you think the Atom will sound MUCH better or is this a case of only some sonic improvements but mostly design and greater functionality/feature set.
